Bono Organic Sicilian Val Di Mazara PDO Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 16.9 ozSave $1.50
This regulation guarantees that the olives used to produce this special EVOO are exclusive to the Val Di Mazara Region. The factory that produces and bottles this precious oil must also be found within this region, located in the western part of Agrigento province and the entire province of Palermo.
To be PDO certified, the olives must be native to the region, provide a max 22% yield and follow organic processes. The entire process, from when the olives begin to grow to the day the oil is bottled, is strictly monitored by Agroqualità, a certifying body controlled by the Italian government.
The factory then undergoes strict organoleptic and chemical testing in order to guarantee quality and traceability. Upon approval, each bottle is awarded its own unique serial number (located on the bottle’s neck) providing full traceability and authenticity.
